Winner of the 2014 IPPY (Independent Publisher Book Award) SILVER MEDAL for Poetry!

Eric Hoffer National Book Award Finalist - Honorable Mention for Poetry

What the Hoffer Award judges had to say to the US Review of Books:

Invoking Anne Sexton's brand of highly personal, confessional verse, Vitoria's tragically intimate collection fearlessly attempts to reconcile ideas such as fear, suicide, family, commitment, pornography, memory, and experience through the binary elements of sight and touch. Vitoria shows a clear understanding of the safety existing in the eyes, in the act of seeing and observing, and in its inherent physical distance that the hands cannot and do not carry. Not until there exists a trust able to reconcile that physical distance and, as Vitoria explains, "spread the body, [using] thumb and palm and say: here, be happy."

Awarded a 2014 Pinnacle Book Achievement Award for Poetry

For an in depth review, see The California Journal of Women Writers:

In Corn Exchange, you will find a full range of poetry that displays a full range of powerful emotions. Vitoria has a unique gift, combining form and content to create succinct yet multi-layered poems that will not fail to move. With titles such as The ornithologist as a pornographer and TEN NON SWANS, you eagerly read on to see what follows, and you always leave fulfilled.

Ms Vitoria's poems have been nominated for Best New Poets and several Pushcart Prizes, as well as being Anthologized.

Corn Exchange was taught to a Poetry MFA course in Umbria, Italy. Her poem We Were Horses, has been taught in various MFA and creative writing classes throughout the US.

Corn Exchange has been compiled over years of work, but the waiting is over, and well worth it!
